Tennessee Titans starting quarterback Marcus Mariota left Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts with an apparent injury. Here is the latest on the status of the Titans' quarterback.

Mariota, who's dealt with multiple injuries this season, left Sunday's game after appearing to injure his elbow.

Titans head coach Mike Vrabel told reporters after the game - a 38-10 loss to the Colts - that he would address the injury today.

"I'll address the injuries tomorrow when I have some more information," Vrabel said when asked about Mariota. "Hopefully we'll be able to get some news with where he's at."

Mariota missed some time earlier in the season with a pinched nerve. His injury on Sunday is believed to be related to that.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport had the latest on Mariota's status this morning. He says that Mariota "appears to have reaggravated a nerve issue."

The Titans should have an official injury update on Mariota and his elbow later today.

Vrabel's comments on Sunday were encouraging, though.

"I asked him how he was on the field, and he said he would be OK," Vrabel said. "We made the decision to go with Blaine.

"[We just wanted] to make sure there was an effective way to take care of the quarterback. All of our players want to finish the game and they want to compete, and they want to fight. And I definitely appreciate that in them. But I think at some point and time you have to get some other guys in the game."

Stay tuned.
